    Deleted in Mac, No Space Recovered...
    Hello, I recently used my MBP to delete
    (1) Photos off a SDHC Memory Card via Card Reader and
    (2) 50-100G off a WD Passport Drive (FAT32)

    When I use either of these devices, it says Memory Full, and shows 0.0MB space free. The files are gone. Therefore I cannot re-delete them on a Window's machine.

    As I've seen on many forums, people teach the user how to re-format the device using Disk Utility into HFS+.

    In my case, I do not wish to reformat anything, just regain the space I lost (Still have 200+G of Photos I do not wish to lose).

    Please advise.

    Thank You !

    Plug the devices back into your MBP and then empty the Trash
